JOHANNESBURG — The South African capital of Pretoria is not exactly considered a fashion hot spot, but Precious Moloi-Motsepe, chairwoman of African Fashion International, or AFI, organizers of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa, or MBFWA, believed that it was time for the city to shine.
“There are a lot of fashion-conscious people living in Pretoria,” she said, “and that’s why it made sense to hold MBFWA there. In fact, more designers should start opening stores in Pretoria. So far, we only have Malcolm Kluk and Christiaan Gabriel du Toit.”
